Not as strong as part 1, but still very much worth buying.,
This review is from: Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Season 6 - Episodes 12-22 (Box Set) [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
"DoubleMeat Palace" - 4/10. This is a very weak episode with plot holes galore and a truly awful ending.
"Dead Things" - 9/10. Excellent episode, excellent cinematography and acting, and the drama elements were very well done.
"Older and Far Away" - 3/10. A whine-fest. Anya and Dawn have tantrums like they're three year olds. The high-point is the sword-swinging demon.
"As You Were" - 9/10. Riley has never been my favourite character but I really liked this episode. There were some great lines ("Troublemeat palace") and some further development for Buffy.
"Hell's Bells" - 5/10. I really used to like this episode, but everytime I watch it it declines in quality. The jokes aren't funny, the motives are awful (I hate Xander now) and the whole Buffy feel wasn't there.
"Normal Again" - 9/10. Terrific and original episode, with some particularly disturbing scenes in the mental hospital. Lots of subtle touches make this one a must-see.
"Entropy" - 8/10. Very good drama episode. Emma Caulfield and James Marsters are great. The first half is weak, the second half is brilliant.
"Seeing Red" - 10/10. One of those amazing episodes that mixes outrageous comedy with tragic sadness. Tara's death was shocking and sudden, and Willow's red eyes are the single best Buffy shot in history.
"Villains" - 10/10. I must've watched this brilliant episode about 20 times. It's truly amazing, Alyson Hannigan is incredible. Everything here is great, making it only second to "Once More, With Feeling" in the season 6 best-of list.
"Two to Go" - 9/10. This episode is almost a 10/10 but there is some silly dialogue here that brings it down a notch. The Buffy-Willow fight is classic.
"Grave" - 9/10. Had to rewatch this to get to really like it. Now I love it. Alyson Hannigan continues her run of great performances, all the Magic Box scenes are great, and the scene with Willow and Xander is classic.
SEASON 6 AVERAGE: 7.7/10. Even with some bad episodes ("Older and Far Away", "DoubleMeat Palace"), this box set is worth buying just to see Black Magick Willow, probably my personal favourite villain ever.
